The CPW Hall of Fame is the official Hall of Fame for the Championship Professional Wrestling promotion. It honors and recognizes wrestlers of the past and present whom have been in CPW and/or other organizations as well. It was created in December 1994 in order to recognize two wrestlers whom suffered career injuries in early to late 1994, Ricky Steamboat and Rick Rude. Ever since 1996, it has been held the third Thursday in March.

In 2008 however, only one wrestler, Danny Brun was inducted. In this case only, sixteen people did the inducting of Brun (not including the emcee of the ceremony, Stephanie McMahon [making seventeen inductors in total]) in a "Dean Martin"-type Roast ceremony.

Several CPW wrestlers have been inducted but only one wrestler, Jackie Blayze has been inducted twice, in 1997 and in 2002.
